    This pic was taken about a month ago... At the time maybe 12-13 weeks. Now about 18 weeks. Still looks the same and no crow.
    Is it possible this is a masculine hen, or a cockeral that hasn't crowed yet?

    Is that a Golden Sebright? If it is ours seem slow to do anything too. Maybe it's the breed [​IMG]

    I too had a very large, masculine hen that I thought for sure would eventually grow saddle feathers and crow....
    instead she laid the first egg:)

    I say hen.
